    [SOLVED] Downloading Things


    I was wondering, is there any way to download things little bits at a time. For example, lets say you want to download something that was 400 MB, but you did not want to wait for the entire time while it was downloading. Is there anyway to download 100 MB of whatever it is, save what you have downloaded so far, shut down your computer then the next time you log onto the internet start downloading where you left off? Thanks.

    Don't know if any of these will meet your needs, but you can find a listing of download managers here:

    Download Managers | Linux App Finder

    If you find something you want to try, it's best to install it with the default package tool for your distribution.
